ALP Test Kit

(PNPP Method)
INTENDED USE:
This reagent kit is intended for "in vitro" quantitative
determination of Alkaline Phosphatase activity in
serum/plasma.

CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: CALCULATION :
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme of the Hydrolase
class of enzymes and acts in an alkaline medium. It is found in ALP activity (U/L) = DA/min. x 2764.
high concentrations in the liver, biliary tract epithelium and in the
bones. Normal levels are age dependent and increase during NORMAL VALUE : .
bone development. Increased levels are associated mainly with
Children (3-15 yrs) : 104 - 390 U/L
liver and bone disease. Moderate increases are seen in
Hodgkins disease and congestive heart failure. Adults : 25 - 140 U/L
Each Laboratory should establish it's own normal range
PRINCIPLE: representing its patient population.
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) at an alkaline pH hydrolases p-
Nitrophenylphosphate to form p-Nitrophenol and phosphate. LINEARITY :
The rate of formation of p-Nitrophenol is measured as an This procedure is linear upto 1600 U/L. If the absorbance change

REACTION:
ALP QUALITY CONTROL :
P-NPP + HO PNP + PO4 For accuracy, it is advised to run known serum controls with each
2
Alk. medium assay.

CONTENTS: LIMITATION & PRECAUTIONS :
Reagent 1 - AMP Buffer 1. Storage conditions as mentioned on the kit to be adhered.
Reagent 2 - PNPP Substrate 2. Do not freeze or expose the reagents to higher temperature as it
may affect the performance of the kit.
MATERIALS REQUIRED BUT NOT PROVIDED:- 3. Before the assay bring all the reagents to room temperature.
- Clean & Dry Glassware. 4. Avoid contamination of the reagent during assay process.
- Laboratory Glass Pipettes or Micropipettes & Tips. 5. Use clean glassware free from dust or debris.
- Bio-Chemistry Analyzer. 6. Reagent : sample ratio as mentioned here above must be strictly
observed as any change in to it will adversly effect the factor.
SAMPLES: 7.Donot use the reagent if the reagent is hazy or cloudy.
Unhaemolysed Serum, ALP is reported to be stable in serum for
3 days at 2 - 8°C. BIBLIOGRAPHY :
